Has anyone ever installed press in wheel studs in 4 bolt drums?

I haven't taken mine apart yet, but I was wondering if there is clearence inside the drum for the shoulders on the studs. I don't have a problem with the drilling of the hubs if they will work.
Thanks

i,v used them on a rail before with out problems, maybe some one here can tell you more, ive heard of them stripping out in hub after awhile because the hubs on vw,s are kind of thin in that section ! somebody else might of had better luck, but i saw a guy getting tires at a store, and the guy putting on the tires stipped out one lug on the rear of bouth sides of his baja, and wasnt going to tell the owner, so being the fellow baja owner, i ratted him out!! so your call.

On one of the how to books I've read,they mention tack welding the stud onto the drum.

Here is a trick for you. Buy some quality bolts the same size as your lugs (either 12mm or 14mm depending on if its 4 lug or 5 lug). Screw them thru from the backside, grind the heads of the bolts down so they dont interfere with the brake hardware, tack weld them and your done.

Thanks guys, the welder is what I was overlooking. I decided to weld the screw in studs to the drum for now(its free). If that fails I will drill out the studs for 14mm studs and go that way.

Thanks again
